Trunk or Treat was rescheduled to Friday, November 1st due to the Halloween weather forecast. But once again the Trunk or Treat with the addition of hayrides was a success! Thank you to everyone that came out and to all those who helped with the organization and planning of this community event. Thank you to the local churches for bringing their trunks filled with goodies. A special thank you to Kelly Wicker for providing his tractor and driving for the hayride. A great time was has by all!
The “most wonderful time of the year” is just around the corner, and the Town of Franklinville is in the planning process for the 2019 Franklinville Christmas Parade! Last year’s parade was a success and our goal for this year’s parade is to be bigger and better! To reach this goal, we need for our citizens, businesses, churches, and schools to participate in the parade on Saturday, December 7th at 10:30 am. The parade line-up begins at 10:00 on Academy St. in Franklinville near the Baptist Church. We would be thrilled to have decorated floats, cars, trucks, tractors, and walkers, characters, and children to ride down Main St. and share their Christmas spirit! We simply ask that you decorate your transportation with Christmas decorations, and dress in Christmas apparel. Please have a sign on your float, car, etc. with your business, church, school, club or organization name displayed. This is a great way to promote your business, club, etc., and for the spectators to know who is participating in the parade! All participants are encouraged, if they like, to bring individually wrapped candy to toss into the crowd along the parade route.
To help us with our preparations, please call Christie at the Franklinville Town Hall at 336-824-2604 or e-mail: email@example.com to add your name to our parade list by Friday, November 15th (no entrance fee required). If you know of someone who should be a part of our parade, please share this information with them. We hope to see our streets filled with family, friends and neighbors to view the parade, so please invite everyone you know to join us on Franklinville’s Main St. on December 7th!
